#111 Shanghai Architecture Series: Bearn Apartments

Five years ago I saw this fake fur coat in the Sanlin Warehouse and tried to investigate its provenance. Now here is an article on Bearn Apartments where Joffre Millinery was located. Read it in Russian or use the online translator of your choice.

M. A. Kichigin's Studio. Corner of Avenue Dubail and Marcel Tillot, Bearn Apt. 10. Lessons in drawing, painting and sculpture.
(Ad from the 1937 magazine Parus)
